The 8km route to Sazak Bay starts at the North end of Adrasan beach.
The easiest way to cross the river is, if starting at the main beach, from Duran Markt grocery store take the road inland 3 minutes alongside the river. Just after the Taxi Cabin use the single lane road-bridge crossing the river between River Hotel and Aybars Hotel. This track bends behind River Hotel back towards the sea and soon meets another track rising leftwards up to join the Sazak Track.

This track to Sazak is passable by rugged small vehicles but not suitable for large vehicles such as this truck making a failed attempt to transport a construction-site-style of accommodation unit.
The track hugs the North side of Adrasan Bay before crossing through a meadowed area then dropping down to Sazak Bay.
Here is a totally uncommercial natural environment with sandy beach. The Bay is a perfect anchorage being well protected by high surrounding cliffs and similarly offers a refuge to wildlife. No provisions are available.

Under a banner of ‘Sazak’ta Bir-iz’ presentations and discussions were made on local environment issues.
Trekking back to Adrasan Bay the late afternoon views become very attractive in the warmer light so allow a little longer for photograph opportunities before entering back into the Bay.
